WELLINGTON (Reuters) - New Zealand’s fightback from a demoralising second test defeat to clinch the third match, and first away series victory over Pakistan in almost 50 years, will help the team progress, captain Kane Williamson has said.

“To bounce back (and) to put out a performance that we’re very much proud of ... to come away with the win against a very strong side like Pakistan, is a great game that guys will remember forever,” Williamson said.

New Zealand beat Pakistan by 123 runs in Abu Dhabi on Friday to clinch a 2-1 series victory, their first away to Pakistan since 1969, just days after they had been hammered in the second match in Dubai by an innings and 16 runs.

Williamson’s side arrive back in New Zealand on Sunday ahead of two tests against Sri Lanka, the first starting in Wellington on Dec. 15.

Somerville, who was working as an accountant in Sydney before he decided to give his cricket career another shot, moved back to New Zealand earlier this year and made his debut in the third game where he had match figures of seven for 127.

“It still feels like a dream, I’m still pinching myself, I’m just so incredibly proud.” Williamson singled out the two slow bowlers for praise, despite the fact his own second-innings century enabled New Zealand to set a victory target of 280 on the final day in Abu Dhabi.

“For those guys to come over here and show their experience and perform the way they did was massive for us getting across the line,” he said.
